find more democrats to come out. when you look at our poll, the folks that tell us they're not likely to vote, they actually approve of the president's job with 75% approval rating. these are minorities and young voters. they have no interest in this election, if they get interested, they could close that gap. >> how do you get them interested? >> look, that's what the president's trying to do. here's what's odd. turnout goes up, people get enthusiastic about voting when they're unhappy. this small slice of voters, it's only 10% of the electorate, they're happy with the president, they're happy with democrats so they don't see a reason to get off their keisters and go out and vote right now. maybe that will change, but i'll be honest, our pollsters tell us it's very unlikely. >> let's take a look at who voters want to control congress. and the poll shows there's a tie, 43% of all responders would like to see democrats hold congress, 43% would like to see republicans gain control of congress. but when you boil that down to likely voters, the republicans have a 9 point advantage. >> let
